Emerald Ash Borer: 

Emerald Ash Borer treatments are vital! We determine how much product is needed by the diameter of your tree at breast height. Ash borer treatments will start by drilling small holes above the root flares. Root flares are great areas for uptake, moisture is prevalent so the product will travel fast. It typically takes 18 months for the back to recover. We insert a plug into the tree to keep the product in the tree. We will then administer a series of 3ML doses of Treeage through our patented Arbor Jet gun. Once your trees have had an Ash Borer treatment they will be protected for 2 years within 4 days of the treatment.
